CONVENTION INTENTION  View Printable Version 
Thursday, September 13 2018

IRCA
Hi Mark - After about 68 years of DXing, my interest has decreased considerably. Several reasons, including noise level on the AM band, overall lousy programming

Michigan DUs, Sept.12th 2018  View Printable Version

Sunrise this morning: 11:21 UTC

594 under light domestic slop with very faint talk by OM & YL, interview
style, with this format fitting 3WV's schedule & podcast at 11:22 UTC. Too
faint for me to log it, but I'm calling it a strong "tentative" right now.
Audio gone by 11:25 UTC. If 3WV in Western Victoria, this would be my
furthest MW DX at 9,862 miles (15,871 km). Hopefully I get another chance
at this one.


612 had a fair signal (for Michigan) this morning with weak but continuous
audio starting just before 11:00 UTC. If not for the heavy domestic slop
from 610, this would have been a fantastic reception. Typically here, DU's
peak just as the domestics start to fade out at sunrise. This peak period,
at the lower end of the band, is usually short-lived and only lasts for a
few minutes. 612 was different this morning, peaking early and lasting for
about 20 minutes with continuous (but still faint) audio. Presumed 4QR
with DU accented YLs talking. Carrier finally faded completely at 11:40
UTC.


Aside from the typical weak carriers at the lower end of the band, nothing
else interesting noted.

73,
Tim Tromp
